Graduate Research Opportunities:

  1. Graduate student opening (Ph.D. only). The Mathur Lab seeks a highly motivated student interested in working towards a Ph.D. degree from the University of Guelph, Canada. The lab uses a combination of cutting edge techniques in molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry and fluorescent protein aided imaging of living cells to understand organelle behaviour and interactions in plant cells. The research focus for the chosen candidate will be on understanding the basis for organelle extensions, such as matrixules, peroxules and stromules, in achieving and maintaining cellular homeostasis. For more details and recent publications from the lab see: http://www.uoguelph.ca/~jmathur/  (posted March 22, 2018)
